Don't Get Stuck: Why Regular Maintenance is Key for Your Mobility Scooter

Updated: Apr 17, 2023


Welcome back to our series on pre-owned mobility scooters! In last week's post, we talked about the benefits of buying a used scooter in today's tough financial climate. This week, we're here to remind you that owning a scooter, whether new or used, comes with the responsibility of regular maintenance.

We get it – maintenance isn't exactly the most exciting topic. But trust us, neglecting your scooter can lead to some serious issues down the line. So let's dive into why regular maintenance is so important.

Avoid Getting Stuck (Literally)

Picture this: you're cruising down the street on your trusty pre-owned scooter when suddenly, it comes to a screeching halt. You try to restart it, but nothing happens. What could be the issue? Well, if you haven't kept up with regular maintenance, there's a good chance that the battery has died or the tires have gone flat.

Regular battery charges and tyre inflation can prevent these types of scenarios from happening. Not only will you save yourself from a frustrating experience, but you'll also save money in the long run by avoiding costly repairs.

Keep Your Scooter Running Smoothly

Regular maintenance not only prevents major breakdowns, but it also keeps your scooter running smoothly. This means that you'll have a more comfortable and reliable ride. Plus, it'll help extend the lifespan of your scooter.

Basic maintenance tasks like cleaning and lubricating can make a huge difference in how your scooter performs. And hey, who doesn't want to feel like they're cruising on a brand new scooter even if it's pre-owned?

Safety First

Perhaps the most important reason to keep up with regular maintenance is safety. Your scooter is a valuable tool for getting around, but it can also pose a safety risk if not properly maintained.

Routine checks of brakes, lights, and other safety features can prevent accidents and ensure that you're always in control of your scooter. Plus, it'll give you peace of mind knowing that you're taking every precaution to stay safe while out and about.

Save a Few Quid

We know we've already touched on this, but it's worth repeating: regular maintenance can save you money in the long run. By catching small issues before they turn into major problems, you'll avoid costly repairs and replacements.

And in today's financial climate, every penny counts. So why not make the investment in regular maintenance now and save yourself from unexpected expenses down the line?


So there you have it – the importance of regular maintenance for your pre-owned mobility scooter. We know it's not the most exciting topic, but it's one that can't be ignored.

By keeping up with maintenance, you'll avoid getting stuck, keep your scooter running smoothly, stay safe, and save money. And who doesn't want all of those things? So go ahead, schedule that maintenance appointment, and enjoy a worry-free ride on your pre-owned mobility scooter.
